How do you eat your grapefruit?

Peel and wedge like an orange or dive in with a spoon? I'm in the latter group but always cut it the same way that my grandmother and mother always did for me as a child - fruit halved, then use a small knife to cut along the sides of each wedge and the base near the rind, then use a spoon to scoop out the wedge - and then finish by flipping the fruit inside out to get all of the remaining bits. Now that I typed it out, it seems like a lot of steps but I guess there's some nostalgia to it. Peeled and wedged like an orange never seems to bring the same satisfaction.
